The Confidante Miami Beach (Fla.) Hotel has deployed the WiSuite hotel energy-management solution. The solution features touchscreen-enabled WiStat-SS smart thermostats in all 363 guestrooms connected to the hotel's property-management system via the WiSuite intelligent network.

Hotel operations staff now can manage all guestroom heating, ventilation and air conditioning units remotely using algorithms that automatically analyze room sensor and revenue-based occupancy data. When a guest checks in, the WiSuite system automatically takes the room out of energy savings mode and initiates a predefined comfort mode.

In addition, the WiSuite platform tracks equipment runtime hotelwide, helping streamline the deployment of staff for preventative-maintenance tasks and extending the life of HVAC assets.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


WiSuite collaborated with The Confidante's operations team to define guest comfort templates that optimize the system for unique property characteristics, including sun load, room size and configuration, and specific HVAC equipment profiles. The hotel team can now set room-specific climate strategies to ensure a high level of guest satisfaction throughout the property.

The WiSuite system also helps accelerate response to in-room equipment issues. The platform generates demand warning alerts when HVAC units fail to meet guest demand, enabling The Confidante's engineering team to proactively resolve issues before guests are even aware.

“The Confidante has a well-earned reputation for 'wowing' our guests with impeccable service and unmatched style and comfort,” GM Keith Butz said in a statement. “The WiSuite hotel energy-management system is a powerful new tool for maintaining that reputation while helping us effectively manage our energy use.”
